BizTalk support for SysPrep

Back in 2005 or so I spent a chunk of time trying to make BizTalk work with SysPrep so that we could clone developer images for a BizTalk development team. At the point at which I was writing scripts to edit SIDs in the database, I gave up.

Its nice to see then, that this is now a supported procedure! Ace:

Sysprep creates a VHD of a BizTalk Server 2009 installation (including the operating system and all prerequisites) for quick deployment on other virtual machines. An image created using Sysprep will choose a new computer name in order to join the domain the first time it starts. To get BizTalk Server running properly, it is necessary to update various instances of the computer name that are stored in the registry and databases.
